Watch: ‘The Americans’ Must Choose Country or Family in Season 3 Trailer

Watch: 'The Americans' Must Choose Country or Family in Season 3 Trailer

The new trailer teasing the upcoming third season of FX’s critically-acclaimed political thriller “The Americans” includes the tagline, “The perfect American family…of Soviet spies,” and it seems an especially appropriate one for this season, considering the dire consequences facing the Jennings family and their ultimate decision between family and country.

Given how much the second season finale’s bombshell twists could end up affecting Philip and Elizabeth’s loyalty to the Mother Country moving forward, fans have been clamoring for answers since the show went off the air in May. The new trailer not only promises answers, but also guarantees a season’s worth of tense action, ambiguous loyalties and killer Keri Russell wigs – basically everything fans of the show love about it in the first place.

Even better, the trailer also includes a quick look at new cast addition Frank Langella: The Oscar-nominee will play the role of Gabriel, the Jennings’ former KGB handler who comes out of retirement to take back responsibility for overseeing the two KGB operatives from their previous handler, Claudia (Margo Martindale).
